The charlatans are at it again. I’m noticing a modern-day revival beginning in California at Bethel (House of God) Church under the ministry of Bill Johnson. This is a counterfeit revival based on Contemplative Prayer and worshipping the god of the Ouija Board—Sozo. While Sozo means “Healing” in Greek, the spirit behind this healing is a demon named "Sozo." There are real healings occurring at Bethel, from real demons. Sozo, the demon, is very powerful. One shouldn't conjure him up, unless you want demonic oppression.
You need to be aware that increased spiritualism, from God and Satan, is increasing. If you won’t discern, you will fall for this slick spiritualism. The most dangerous activity is to "Summon" (conjuring) these spirits into your realm.
When a Facebook friend chided me about my claim that the Bethel Revival was a false one, I sent him this video: Shocking Documentary 3-False spirits invade the church-Kundalini Warning-Andrew Strom – see more at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWeUNoR30_0
Later, this friend(?) and others rebuked me openly, stating, “Anyone who wants to declare the work of the Holy Spirit as demonic needs to reevaluate some things.”
I’m very pro gifts of the spirit; whereas, I’m warning you that Yoga, Kundalini, Sozo Healing, and Contemplative Prayer open gateways to the demonic. While everyone wants a God experience, do you want demons in tow?
Frank Bartleman reported on the outpouring of God’s Spirit at Azuza Street. This excerpt is from one of his tracts warning of a Christ-less Pentecost.
He warned: "We may not hold a doctrine, or seek an experience, except in Christ. Many are willing to seek power in order to perform miracles, draw attention and adoration of the people to themselves, thus robbing Christ of His glory, and making a fair showing in the flesh. The greatest need would seem to be for true followers of the meek and lowly Jesus. Religious enthusiasm easily goes to seed. The human spirit so predominates the show-off, religious spirit. But we must stick to our text - Christ.
"Any work that exalts the Holy Ghost or 'gifts' above Jesus will finally end up in fanaticism. Whatever causes us to exalt and love Jesus is well and safe. The reverse will ruin all. The Holy Ghost is a great light, but focused on Jesus always for His revealing.
"Where the Holy Ghost is actually in control, Jesus is proclaimed the Head - the Holy Ghost, His executive."
Later, Bartleman warned: "The temptation seems to be toward empty manifestations. This does not require any particular cross, or death to the self-life. Hence it is always popular.
"We may not put power, gifts, the Holy Ghost, or in fact anything ahead of Jesus. Any mission that exalts even the Holy Ghost above the Lord Jesus Christ is bound for the rocks of error and fanaticism.
"There seems to be a great danger of losing sight of the fact that Jesus was 'all in all.' The work of Calvary, the atonement, must be the center for our consideration. The Holy Ghost will never draw our attention from Christ to Himself, but rather reveal Christ in a fuller way. We are in danger of slighting Jesus - getting Him 'lost in the temple,' by the exaltation of the Holy Ghost and of the gifts of the Spirit. Jesus must be the center of everything."
My final thoughts: You may open yourself to God, or to the Satan. It’s your choice. This is a video showing two UFO’s over Vero Beach Florida in late-January 2015:

Listen to the crazy leader telling the people to open their third eye and chakras to receive the aliens in radiance and purity. This is bad advice.
We can expect more apparitions. Discern properly and choose God, and not the Satan. Speaking of Satan...

In everything give thanks, for this is what God wants from you who are united with the Messiah Yeshua. Don’t quench the Spirit, don’t despise inspired messages. But do test everything — hold onto what is good, but keep away from every form of evil. I Thessalonians 5:18-22 (CJB)
